Italy reach historic U-17 Final

Italy are in the European Under-17 Championship Final for the first time in history, beating hosts Slovakia 2-0.

It took just three minutes for Atalanta midfielder Mario Pugliese to break the deadlock from 16-year-old Milan talent Luca Vido’s assist.

A goalline clearance denied Alberto Cerri a second, but Roma defender Elio Capradossi finished off the semi-final at the 64th minute.

Italy go into the Final of this tournament for the first time ever and will face either Russia or Sweden in Friday’s showdown.
